We believe spaying and neutering is a responsible choice with many benefits. Besides preventing unwanted litters, these procedures can help cats live a long, healthy life. In addition, spaying or neutering may help tone down unwanted behaviors like food guarding, territory marking and aggression towards people or other pets.
However, when a cat is spayed or neutered, their body can undergo changes. They may experience a drop in hormone levels, a shift that can often translate to a slower metabolism, decreased activity, and in turn, weight gain.
Most cats in the US are spayed or neutered. So we set out to create a formula specifically designed to help these cats burn fat more efficiently and maintain a healthy weight. We call it Purina ONE® SMARTBlend® Healthy Metabolism™.
This special blend features higher levels of protein and lower levels of fat and carbohydrate. We’ve also made L-Carnitine a key ingredient. This nutrient helps the body convert fat into energy.
